Bearding Like a Pro with

Its something of a standard in our family to have a beard. I suppose its just nature that the three “Mullen Men” all look stunningly handsom (just sayin) with facial hair. We’ve had all sorts of styles from goatee’s to mega beards and for a short time, even a fu-manchu style.

These days, especially with the little one, it’s hard to put the time and care needed into my beard. But if you want it to be healthy and “non-hobo-ish” (as my wife once put it) you gotta set some time aside at least once a day. When Men Essentials contacted me about trying out “Blue Beards Original Daily Beard Wash”, I had to have it. Not only does it clean your pores and keep your hair healthy, it also gives it an awesome light Lime scent that keeps the Wife happy. The best part is it takes almost no time at all, just wet your face, put some on the tips of your fingers, rub it into your skin for about 30 seconds and rinse your face real quick. Boom. Done.

Now I know what you may be thinking: Ben…this sounds like a mega advertisement and you sound like you’re full of shit. But as promised, I’ve never/will never promote something I don’t believe in. This stuff actually helped me out in keeping better groomed with the style of beard I want to have while not taking any time away from my daily routine.

There’s something more to Bearding though that not many “non-beard” people understand. To really “sculpt” the perfect beard to present to the world, it not only takes care but trimming as well. In my case, I like to keep my neck as clean as possible, and every once in a while go for the mutton chops. So I jumped at the chance to get my hands on the awesome Merkur Double Edged Safety Razor for staying sharp. It’s an oldschool safety razor style that comes with Gillete “7 o’clock” razors. It’s SOOOOOOOO much better than the disposables I’ve been motoring through, and cheaper than my “Fusion” shaver.

My order even came with a pack of Gummy Bears.


Sound like something you’re into? Give it a shot by heading over to and checking out all the awesome stuff they’ve got lined up. Its been awesome getting to put this stuff to use over the past couple of weeks, and I’m definitely gonna keep them both in my routine as long as possible.
